Why Use Irv Graham’s Online Appraisal & Valuation Service?

For over two decades, I’ve successfully run a probate/antique valuation business in the UK, gaining deep knowledge across a broad spectrum of antiques. This includes furniture, ceramics, silver, art, jewelry, and a variety of collectibles. My expertise extends to Asian art and antiques, a field I’ve been deeply involved with through my popular website, chineseantiques.co.uk, for nearly 20 years.

The idea to start Irv Graham’s online antiques appraisal and valuation service came from noticing a significant gap in the market for dependable and thorough appraisal services. This realization was sparked by witnessing the poor quality of valuations and appraisals from a leading company in the antique valuation sector. I saw a troubling trend of inaccuracies, misrepresentations, and even blatant falsehoods in the valuations given to customers.

Instead of correcting these mistakes or refunding payments, the company frequently maintained its stance, leaving customers with fabricated descriptions and either inflated or undervalued assesments. This practice, which I found wholly unacceptable, led me to establish irvgraham.com. My goal was to provide accurate and comprehensive valuations and appraisals for a wide range of antiques and collectibles.

Maintaining an unblemished reputation in the antiques community is crucial to me. I’m dedicated to adhering to the highest standards of integrity and precision in my work. If ever I come across an item I am unable to identify or value, I don’t hesitate to acknowledge my limitations. Thankfully, my long experience in the antiques trade has allowed me to build a wide network of specialist dealers and valuers. Their expertise is invaluable, ensuring that I can provide the best service possible, even when facing challenging items.
